Re: Foot numbness after surgery
I had calcaneus reconstruction surgery after a significant trauma, so I can't say that my procedure was even close to the same.
But for me, I still have numbness all over my foot. Most of it is along the side where my pinky toe is, but a lot around the scar/incision site. Some around my big toe as well. I was told I could have this numbness up to a year.
It feels really weird, but doesn't seem to be causing any other trouble. I massage it a lot to try and "wake up" the nerves, but they have to regrow in their own time.
Good luck figuring it out!
